Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust uses Docobo’s remote monitoring to enable patients to be cared for at home

Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust works with Docobo’s DOC@HOME® telehealth solution in its Digital Health Service to support 130 patients across the locality. Patients use Docobo’s CAREPORTAL® patient handheld devices at home, which enables clinical staff to safely and securely manage them, keeping patients out of hospital where possible and reducing demand on the whole system of care.

The DOC@HOME solution and clinical monitoring is managed by the Digital Health Centre at Tameside and Glossop, with the council team providing the installation and patient training service. The initial implementation took 14 days from kick off meeting to go-live stage – and has now been running for around four years with excellent results.

DOC@HOME is a regulatory compliant digital healthcare management solution for patients in their own place of residence. CAREPORTAL® enables the recording of daily clinical, lifestyle and quality of life data, as well as the delivery of appropriate condition-specific information to educate patients and assist them to manage their conditions more effectively. Collected data and alerts are made available to the Digital Health team at Tameside and Glossop IC NHS FT via the secure HSCN hosted DOC@HOME Web access portal, which provides case management functionality to enable remote management of elderly and vulnerable patients suffering from long term conditions.

Peter Grace, Deputy Divisional Director for Intermediate Tier Services, Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust, says: “We continue to work closely with Docobo since the initial roll out, and have since procured another 90 CAREPORTALs, which has enabled us to establish Virtual Wards, meaning we can manage more complex patients at home and link patients to consultants and GPs. We can now support patients at home as an alternative to hospital care, and also support early discharge from hospital, freeing up bed capacity where it is safe to do so.”

Adrian Flowerday, Managing Director of Docobo comments: ‘I’m really impressed by the quality, experience and can-do attitude of the team at Tameside and Glossop, which enabled an instant pragmatic partnership with the Docobo team, resulting in this record implementation time, and ensuring the most vulnerable are being monitored and proactively cared for.”
